One of the resolutions to be presented at National Federation of Women’s Institutes AGM in Liverpool on 8th June is in support of the public library service, urging “H.M. Government to maintain support for libraries, as an essential local education and information resource”. Voices for the Library have been kindly invited to attend, and CILIP CEO Annie Mauger will be addressing the meeting.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the librarians, library users and members of professional bodies who have spent so much time giving information to the WI, especially to those who have attended local WI meetings and given talks at resolution conferences around the country. With 210,000 members, the NFWI is an influential lobbying force and we really hope that the resolution is passed in order for the NFWI to continue to support this important cause.
